Hmm, a lot of googled pics, but are there no road enthusiasts in Argentina that take pictures of the roads themselves?

Random pics without some information are kind of boring after a while... Let's try to put on this thread also usefull information about developments as well as updates on motorway construction just as it is done on all the other country threads. I did a post about the status of motorway construction a couple of days ago. I'm currently spending some weeks in Argentina and taking a lot of pics of highways, I will post them shortly along general info of each road. by the way, I was suprised to see most of the roads on very good conditions, except for certain sections on the suburbus of big cities.
I was able to drive at a somewhat steady 120-130 km-h most of the time, something unexpected if you don't have a motorway.

The argentinian forum is ok, but it's in spanish, so non spanish speakers won't understand it (online translations are quite horrible for the kind of relaxed writing that is used there)... The great thing about this english language forum is that you can get updated information from every country in the world without knowing the local language... (I speak spanish, but if I ask for information on about, let's say, Russia and somebody recomends me to check the russian forum it won't be of much help...)

Let's make an effort and put this thread on the same quality level of the motorway threads from other countries!

[ARG] General Paz Avenue

Avenida General Paz (official name Ruta Nacional A001 - National Route A001) is a beltway freeway surrounding the city of Buenos Aires. Roughly following the boundary between the city and Buenos Aires Province, it is one of the few motorways in Argentina that is toll-free. It carries three lanes of traffic in each direction during most of its length, and five lanes between the Pan-American Highway and the Río de la Plata. There are feeder roads in both directions and there are service areas along its length, usually with a gas station and fast food restaurants.


History

Federal law number 2,089 of 1887 established the limits of the city of Buenos Aires, including the Partidos of Belgrano and San José de Flores. In Article 6 it declared that a road was to be built to delimit these with the city of Buenos Aires. Due to the plan of drawing straight lines for the road, an exchange of land was made between the Capital Federal and Buenos Aires Province.

Named after José María Paz, the freeway was designed by Pascual Palazzo and construction was directed by José María Zaballa Carbó. It was the first freeway built in the country. The crossings with the most important avenues were grade-separated; more minor cross-streets were served with traffic circles. The road had four lanes, two on each direction and lateral feeder streets of one lane on each side. The pavement was made of reinforced concrete.

Work was started on June 8, 1937, and the freeway was opened to the public on July 5, 1941. In the 1970s the roundabout on Avenida del Libertador was replaced by an interchange

In 1996 the road was modernized and fully grade-separated, widening the road to three lanes on each direction and two feeder streets with two lanes each. To facilitate traffic it was decided that the colectivo bus lines travelled on these feeder roads, except the express service buses, which stop on these feeders. These streets have speed bumps of limit speed to.
